Mount Hallasan is often recommended even for the honeymooners who visit Jeju Island in Korea. Do you know why? That’s because no matter how tough the trails could be, views you enjoy from the edge of this mountain are simply jaw-dropping.
Don’t get scared when you hear that Mount Hallasan is an active volcano! It really is, but scientists have stated that it won’t smoke or belch fire. So, fear not- you may enjoy this hike without any second thoughts.
If you are coming from any Jeju apartment the likes of Somerset Jeju Shinhwa World, you can try out one of the trails. The Gwaneumsa Trail is sure to offer the best views, but the easiest is considered the Seongpanak Trail. The other two are namely the Yeongsil and Eorimok Trails.
While you climb the stairs, do not forget to enjoy the views. Shelters are there on your way for you to stop for a bathroom break or a small rest.
Before you go, make sure you keep an eye on the weather forecast. Take a waterproof jacket in case it rains.
